Scarf Style with a Bangle Bracelet

Scarf Style

Ann’s new infinity scarves are an easy and affordable fashion accessory that you can wear many ways.  Here is a styling tip that uses a favorite bracelet for a unique and pretty look.

First step:  settle the scarf around your neck, hanging simply like a necklace.

Find a cuff-style bracelet, preferably one that is not hinged.  You want the kind that slips over your wrist, like this sterling silver one from Simon Sebbag, which has a bit of shine and is smooth (won’t snag your scarf).

Choose a smooth bangle bracelet.  This one is sterling silver by Simon Sebbag, $239.50

Slide the bottom end through the bracelet.

Slide the bracelet over the scarf.

Bring it about half-way up.  Hold it there a moment.

Stop about half-way up.

Now, this is the part that makes the magic.  Take the bottom of the scarf, bring it up towards your face and loop it over your head.  Settle the fabric and the bracelet, which is now a scarf ornament, the way you like.

Flip the scarf over your head again.

It should look like this.

Settle the bracelet and scarf the way you like.

What a pretty way to showcase a favorite bracelet and keep your scarf from flapping all over!  This style also gives you a bit of coverage and dresses up the neckline of an ordinary T shirt or cami.

New Magnet Pins Keep Your Glasses Handy

If you spend time searching for your glasses, you need one of Ann’s new Magnet Pins.  Powerful magnets attach to your jacket, purse, or blouse and give you a place to tuck your reading glasses, sunnies or ID badge.  (No pins to put holes in fabric or tear your clothes.)  Decorative ornament makes them pretty.  Lots of styles in silver or gold tone…which one will you choose?  $19.95 each.

 

Sparkle

Make a statement when you protect your eyes from the strong summer sun.  Fancy sunglasses are fun to wear…invest in a quality pair and step up your look!  UV protection and Swarovski crystals.  Please inquire for price.

Hats Fabulous

Keeping the sun off your head and face is important these days, not just to stay cooler but to avoid harmful UV rays that can lead to skin cancers.  If you don’t have a good sunhat for your outdoor activities, come by and pick one out.  Natural colored straw styles for men and women have substantial UV protection ratings.  Most under $50.
